A proper hair care is very essential to prevent hair loss. This has to be started at the earliest before hair starts thinning or before the occurrence of hair fall. Prevention of hair loss has various benefits. It helps to save money which will be spent on hair loss products and hair loss therapies. It also reduces stress which we experience due to hair fall. A regular hair care routine is easier than struggles which we have to undergo to prevent the loss. Texts of Ayurveda and Ayurveda acharyas recommend various solutions to prevent this condition.
Here is the list of ayurvedic healthy tips for a proper hair care.
- Keep your hair clean: Hair follicles on scalp secrete natural oil. This attracts dirt and dust making scalp and hair dirty. This attracts microbes (bacteria and fungus) and cause scalp infection. Microbes reduce the strength of hair follicle leading to the loss of hair strands. Hence wash your hair and scalp with warm water and shampoo that suits your hair and scalp. Wash your hair once in three days. Repeated hair wash leads to dry hair and split ends.
- How to apply shampoo: Our body produces natural oil which is secreted through oil glands of skin and scalp. This oil keeps our hair strands conditioned. Hence do not use harsh shampoos which strip off natural oil of scalp. Brush your hair from root to tips before washing. Always use mild shampoo to wash hair. Dilute the shampoo with equal quantity of water and then wash scalp and roots. Do not rub hair tips between palms while shampooing. This may lead to split ends.
- Oil massage to scalp is very essential: Massage your scalp and hair with hair friendly oils like sesame oil, coconut oil, almond oil or olive oil. Some may prefer castor oil. Hair oil which is processed with hair friendly herbs help to condition the hair and prevent drying of hair. A good head massage help to increase blood circulation to scalp skin and aid hair growth. Head massage also reduces stress, tension headaches and induces good sleep.
- Trim your Hair at regular intervals: Trimming you mane regularly helps your hair look and feel better. Besides, it’s also a long “bye-bye” to those annoying split ends!
